[audio]Celebrating the Dead - Radio New Internationalist
Inspired by the millions of people around the world who are celebrating All Souls Day this year, the Radio New Internationalist dips into different cultures to hear the many ways in which the world's populations honour their dead and respect the dying. From the fear of the spirit-world underpinning Halloween to the burning of money at the tomb-sweeping festivals of Taiwan, the ways we celebrate death shape our own hopes and fears about dying...

[audio]Musical Unions - Radio New Internationalist
In just minutes, one song can deliver a powerful message that would take a bookload of words to explain. Unquestionably, some songs move our hearts and sympathies in a way that straight facts could never achieve. But while we have experienced how sound can enrich our lives, it can also move those who create it through a healing journey to a better place. This program's chost - Brian Procopisfrom Sweet Freedom, an Australian social justice program that works through sound and song - brings music ...

Radio New Internationalist has just won the 2007 Excellence in Spoken Word Programming award from the Community Broadcasting Association of Australia. Here’s the program that won it… Taxing Matters. Africans are poor. Everyone knows that. But they needn’t be. On current estimates, for every dollar of aid that flows into Africa, five dollars of financial assets flow out into private bank accounts in the Rich World...

[audio]Human Rights Olympics - Radio New Internationalist
The starters' gun has gone off. We're all in the running. Many say it's the most important race of all - the human race. In a year when international media is focusing on the 2008 Beijing Olympics, New Internationalist celebrates the 60th anniversary of the Declaration of Human Rights with a medal count of its own. And what better way to judge the runners than through their pursuit of human rights? This program highlights some of the big winners… and big losers...

[audio]Fuel for Thought - Radio New Internationalist
The global impact of using food supplies to fuel cars As world leaders prepare to fly into Bangkok, the capital of Thailand, for the next round of United Nations climate change talks, we’re wondering – realistically – what these talks are going to achieve. They’re supposed to strengthen global action on climate change, but just how we’re going to achieve those all-important reductions in greenhouse gases and the cooling of the environment are no where in sight...

[audio]The new superpowers - Radio New Internationalist
This week on Radio New Internationalist… The new superpowers As US power falls, people-power is rising. Never before has a United States’ Presidential election been given so much coverage in the Western World as it’s being given now. Indeed, sometimes it feels like it’s taken over our political horizon. But look, up in the sky! The world’s media-spotlights are shining in the wrong direction! Commentators concede that as a super power, the US is in decline...

[audio]Another Afghan Postard - Radio New Internationalist
The sixth anniversary of the United States-led invasion of Afghanistan is fast approaching, but no-one is celebrating. Western governments continue to pour military resources into Iraq and Afghanistan, turning away from the reality that their continuing intervention is destroying the social, political and economic viability of both countries. In this program we hear the voices that are too often missing from mainstream media coverage: the perspectives of Afghans and Iraqis themselves...

As campaigners from Iran, Mauritius, the Pacific and the Philippines talk about how US bases operate in their region, a clearer picture emerges of how the US maintains its superpower status… and the price that ordinary people in other parts of the world must pay as ...

Next time you're downloading a film or music through the internet, spare a thought for Hew Griffiths, 44 years old, unemployed and now languishing in a jail half a world away from his home. Unlike most of the other inmates, he's not there for doing drugs, theft or assault. Rather, his crime was to belong to a group that cracked security codes of some of the United States' biggest media moguls, giving group members access to software and games that - if downloaded - could have been accessed free ...

To fly or not to fly... Now that we're more conscious of combating climate change, cutting back on carbon emissions is high on the list. To fly or not to fly - that is the question. After all, heating a home for a whole year produces on average less carbon dioxide emissions than one person taking a return flight from New York to London. But helse do you get there? You can't take a train, and who's got time for a boat? Should you go at all? 's just one of many dilemmas that confront ethical trave...

Common senses While mainstream media steer a hard right away from good news stories, the everyday ‘wins’ of ordinary people are getting ignored. As a consequence, opportunities to be inspired by and learn from the victories of progressive people in other countries get lost. This program showcases progressive people who are using common senses to get their messages across: people presenting their messages through our five bodily senses – taste, sight, hearing, touch and smell – in a way t...

[audio]Dreaming of a Fair Trade Christmas - Radio New Internationalist
This week, as the holiday shopping season gets into full swing, we examine some of the impacts our consumption patterns have on people and planet. We take a look at some of the food we eat, the clothes we wear and what gadgets we use and ask whether 'ethical shopping' is a way out of the quagmire. Today's co-host is New Internationalist co-editor Jess Worth who's done some research into the ethical shopping sector and has found that all is not as simple as it seems at first glance...

Just one microscopic particle of depleted uranium lodged in the lungs can start a reaction in a single cell that could lead to fatal cancer. It's unfortunate, then, that the world has an estimated one million tonnes of this dangerous waste - and a very limited supply of ways to get rid of it. In this program we'll hear how, why and where it's being dumped… and the injuries and deaths that are being caused as a result...

Get ready for some reasoned realignment as we welcome co-editor of New Internationalist magazine David Ransom, and hear how growing your own veges is a profoundly political act, challeng...

Now that products are being pumped out into already saturated markets, it's not surprising that the culture that capitalism creates is centred on: 'Me! Me! More! More!'.

The power in truth and the justice in revenge... What’s wrong with a bit of revenge? It may be a base emotion, but it has some redeeming qualities that we ignore at our peril. For individuals, it acknowledges the harm done to the victim and punishes the perpetrator – needs which, if unmet, can be psychologically devastating to a victim. Within countries, ‘moving on’ from conflict without meeting the needs of victims can mean widespread community violence decades later...
